Yeah, I did take a contesting hiatus a few years
ago when I returned to school for another degree.....
while still working Full Time.
contesting but it's hard when your
job requires you to work weekends. So when
vacation "bid requests" (times off awarded based on seniority)
are posted at the beginning of the year,
I have to balance contest weekends I want to bid
on versus the times my XYL wants me to bid on.
It can get hairy, but she's a good sport about it
and knows how much enjoyment it brings me.
Of course it helps to have a job with 5 weeks a
year paid vacation.
